Hoyer on departure from Browns: Fresh start good for both sides
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8:24 am ET) Quarterback Brian Hoyer went 10-6 over two seasons with the Browns, making him the only quarterback to post a winning record among 22 Browns starters since the franchise's 1999 rebirth, per USA Today.
Still, the Browns have chosen to part ways with Hoyer after signing Josh McCown to a three-year, $14 million contract last week. However, it doesn't seem Hoyer holds any ill will toward the Browns.
"It's good for both sides to get a fresh start and go our separate ways," Hoyer said. "Being from here, I'll always root for the Browns. I know I'm going to be continuing my football career somewhere."
Hoyer could be one of the more sought after free-agent quarterbacks now that McCown is headed to Cleveland and the Bills acquired Matt Cassell. The Jets, Titans, Rams and Texans could all be looking to add a quarterback to the roster.
"It's an exciting time, my first time as a free agent," Hoyer said. "You don't know where you'll be living in two months. The good thing is I'll have an opportunity to be on an NFL team, and hopefully, compete for a starting job. ... I have a lot to offer whatever team I go to. My best football is still ahead."
Report: Browns QB Brian Hoyer could be on the way out of Cleveland
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) With the signing of Josh McCown Friday, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer could be looking elsewhere for employment. Coach Mike Pettine called Hoyer to inform him the team was signing McCown and Hoyer appears ready to move on, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
Hoyer played in 14 games for the Browns in 2014, throwing for 3,326 yards with 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He lost his starting position to Johnny Manziel in Week 15, but was forced back into action after Manziel suffered a season-ending injury.
GM Ray Farmer: Browns could make trade for QB during the draft
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) With the Browns destined to find a starting quarterback, general manager Ray Farmer told reporters on Thursday that he's done a cost-benefit analysis on trading up for a quarterback, reports the Plain Dealer. The Browns have the No. 12 overall pick in this year's draft.
"Coach (Mike) Pettine has articulated that he wants a starter, so we have to find him a starter," Farmer said.
Farmer was noncommittal when asked whether he believed Johnny Manziel could be the No. 1 come next season. Farmer has spoken to Manziel twice by phone since Manziel checked into rehab.
Farmer wouldn't reveal if he has met with Brian Hoyer's representatives, as well. Hoyer beat out Manziel as the starter last season, but lost his job late in the year. He is expected to become free agent in March.
"Just because a player didn't succeed in one place doesn't mean he won't succeed in another," Farmer said, when asked of the free agency pool.
Brian Hoyer will consider 'all options' in free agency
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(2/7/15) With Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer headed for free agency, Hoyer told reporters he would like to return to Cleveland, but left open the possibility of leaving, reports ESPN.com.
Hoyer wants a chance to compete for a starting job and said if it's not in Cleveland, he would be open to signing with another team.
"For me all options are on the table, and obviously Cleveland has a big place in my heart," he said.
Hoyer competed with Johnny Manziel for the starting job in 2014. Hoyer started the first 13 games of the season and went 7-6, before Manziel briefly took over. Manziel recently entered rehab, which Hoyer praised.
"It takes a big person to take those steps," Hoyer said. "I'm hoping for the best for him."
Report: Browns considering trading up for Marcus Mariota
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(2/3/15) The Browns will give "very strong consideration" to trading up in an effort to draft Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, reports Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, citing sources within the organization. Cleveland owns the Nos. 12 and 19 picks in the 2015 draft.
In CBSSports.com's latest mock drafts, experts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have Mariota going sixth to the Jets. An earlier report from The Star-Ledger indicated the Eagles also could try to trade up for Mariota, who played two years at Oregon under coach Chip Kelly.
Cleveland's quarterback situation is a mess. Brian Hoyer is headed for free agency, and Johnny Manziel just checked himself into rehab.
|Brian Hoyer will compete for the Browns starting quarterback job in training camp this summer with rookie Johnny Manziel. Hoyer got on a roll early last season but tore his ACL in Week 5 and missed the rest of the way. In two starts he was 55 for 92 passing for 590 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions. That's pretty amazing for two games but keep in mind that he played in a totally different offense than what will be in Cleveland this season. He might not attempt any more than 30 to 35 passes on a regular basis if he can beat out Manziel and keep the job week after week. Furthermore, his stock slipped when word got out that Josh Gordon could be suspended for the whole season. Hoyer is no longer worth drafting except for two-quarterback leagues -- and that's if he lands the job out of training camp. Hoyer would need to win that gig and play very well for the whole season in order to remain Fantasy relevant -- that's a longshot.
